Mazars’ Financial Reporting Forum

Mazars’ Financial Reporting Forum is a series of hands-on, technical workshops on topical accounting matters designed for large and listed organisations.

Workshops in the series

Current sessions of the Forum are looking at the practical implications of IFRS 16, the new leasing standard. The new standard comes into effect on 1 January 2019 and brings a number of changes for companies that have interests in lease contracts as a lessee. These workshops will help you understand the requirements, anticipate the challenges and implement the standard effectively.

Topics for future workshops will be expanded to include other reporting standards, such as IFRS 9.

Summaries of specific issues that have been discussed in workshops that have already taken place can be downloaded below.

Who should join?

Chief Financial Officers and Financial Controllers, along with the Project Leader and/or members of the Finance Team, of large and listed companies. Members should be prepared to contribute.
